The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation is looking for businesses with the capability to manufacture or supply medical personal protective equipment.

Huge international demand for medical supplies to deal with COVID-19 has the potential to impact locally. The pandemic response has also resulted in a massive reduction in business activity.

One of the state government activities to potentially help with both these issues has been to call for input from the local business community.

The department, working with ICNWA, have launched a project page on ICN Gateway seeking expressions of interest for businesses with manufacturing capability for PPE and supplies such as:

• Face masks
• Gowns
• Safety glasses
• Hand sanitiser
• Gloves
• General health equipment and PPE

The department is not just looking for businesses that are already in the medical equipment supply chain. Willing businesses that are in a position to adapt their current processes or collaborate with others to make the needed equipment should also make contact.

Businesses with capability or transferable technologies are encouraged to go to gateway.icn.org.au to register and for more detailed information.
